    Something to Do With It Being a Man's Game

    I play chess, love it, and although definiely not a master, I am quite well at it. I guess its the general view that "chess is a man's game, man obviously being the more intelligent geder" that had driven me to it in he first place. The love grew in years. I am more of...

    A friend's 7 year old daughter taught me how to

    play chess! And then I taught my own teenager how to play. I rarely won against my pint-size teacher, and now my son takes me to the cleaners as well. Kids are brutal sometimes, haha! I start every game with the statement "Ok, no more chances for you!" But we both know I'm...

    A Chequered Past

    I've always had a strange fascination with Chess. For as long as I can remember, the board has held a strangely enigmatic appeal to me. I remember feeling so envious of the people who had a seemingly natural talent for the game, because despite my intrigue I was totally lacking...

    A few years ago I got sober and started hanging out with someone who knew how to play chess. The only thing I knew was where the pieces moved. So I started playing chess with this person and now I love playing on my own. I have an account on chess.com and I still play with my...

    Chess Is Perfect.

    To me, playing chess is the ultimate experience. It is 64 perfect squares, and 32 pieces, that can never change, they can never be altered, the knight will always move in an "L" shape, the bishop will always move diagonally, etc. Whenever I do anything, whether it's watch a movie...

    Ah, When It Started

    I remember learning chess from reading it in a book, and making my own set out of K'nex and a pizza box I checkered in with a pencil. Eventually I got a glass set and I love it. Still one of my favorite games!

    Boring and Mundane?

    Chess, a game that conjures up many sentiments.  From boring and dull to exciting and stimulating.  For me Chess is the ultimate game of strategy.  There is no luck, no random chance.  It is just the two players and a board with 32 pieces.  All with...
